South Dakota has its own rules for selling a used car. This handy guide will make the process simpler.
Step 1 - Gather Documents
Certificate of Title
Complete the back of the certificate.
- Date of sale.
- Selling price.
- Odometer disclosure (less than 10 years old).
- Damage disclosure (less than 7 years old).
- Your hand-printed name, signature, and address.
- Buyer’s hand-printed name and signature.
Bill of Sale
South Dakota requires you to provide a bill of sale.
Keep a copy for yourself. It’s legal proof of transfer of ownership.
Your PrivateAuto listing includes an electronic bill of sale form and state-specific documents. Complete them and sign right in the app.
Vehicle History Report
You can show that you’re a trustworthy seller when you provide a vehicle history report. PivateAuto’s trusted partner, AutoCheck, offers the best value for the money.
Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive
When setting up a test drive, it can lead to seemingly endless calls, texts, and emails.
But there’s a better way. Use PrivateAuto’s test drive scheduler instead.
Choose a place to meet and select days and times you’re available.
Step 3 - Complete the Sale
If you can, finalize the sale at a county treasurer's office. It’s the best way to make sure you meet all the requirements.
You’ll need to complete the Seller’s Report of sale within 15 days. It’s a good idea to do it right away. That way you’re not held liable if the new owner…
- Uses the car in a crime.
